Please, listen to* my story:
I'm a big fan of Fighting Games, specially KOF and XIII is my favourite KOF ever. But I'm not as good as I wanted to be.
You see, I got some "skills
". I managed to complete all the 10 trials for Kyo, EX Kyo, Elisabeth, Leona, Ralf and Mai. If only execution were everything...
I have watched every single video from Juicebox about KOF XIII and that helped a lot; I have watched a lot of pro players matches to see how they understand and use the fundamentals of the game and I'm trying my best to improve, but I'm still not seeing progress.
You see, my main team is: EX Kyo, Leona and Elisabeth and I won't
change to EX Iori, Mr. Karate and Kim. In fact, I don't think the problem is lying on the characters area, but it's lying on me. If I can't win consistently using my main team, neither will I do with the "EVO Team"... I believe.
The game is basically dead now, therefore I only know a few people who still play the game on Steam. To be more precisely, when I started the game I met this guy playing online around one year ago and he was a waaaaaaaaay better than me; he'd kick my ass every time -and I mean every time
. Nowadays, I'm better than he is, I won almost every set we played on the past days. Now he gave up on playing against me, claiming that I have bested him. I took that as a compliment.
Obviously, as the time would pass, we would improve and things happened just like so; the way we played the game one year ago is very different from what we play nowadays, that's obvious. I just want to point that to say: it seems I have improved faster than he did, since I started way worse than him and now I'm better.
Well, then I met another guy this year playing online and guess what!? He's waaaaaaaaaaay better than I am. The score of our last set was 54-3; and man, am I frustrated! That's shameful, but I want to overcome this, I want to become better, but the thing is that I don't know where I'm making mistakes, what I do know is that everything I do gets beaten. If I think to hop, I get rekt by his air to air, if I full jump, I eat an anti-air, if I try to run, just so I can mix up my "aggression", I swallow a normal of some sort... it seems he's in my mind. Man, I'm lost in this game, I don't know how to make him scared of pressing a button, confused with my mix ups or make him sit on the corner; instead, I'm the one scared to press a button, I'm the one confused with his mix ups and I'm the one sitting on the corner.
I don't know what to do to become better, despite having the will to do so.
I need your help, guys. Please. I'm frustrated and tired.
